A 19-hit performance by the Wichita State Shockers spoiled the 2012 home finale for the Nebraska baseball team (32-20, 12-9 Big Ten) on Tuesday night at Hawks Field. The Shockers got out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first and never looked back, as they coasted to a 13-2 win.
Juniors Chad Christensen and Josh Scheffert each had two hits on the night and Richard Stock hit his team-leading 16th double of the season, but three Shocker home runs and a 5-for-5 night from Johnny Coy proved too much.
The Huskers will be back on the field in less than 48 hours when they open a three-game series at Michigan on Thursday night at 5:05 p.m. (CT). Freshman Kyle Kubat is scheduled to get the ball for the Huskers as they look to secure a spot in the Big Ten Tournament.
With three games remaining in the regular season, NU sits in a tie for fourth place and is one-game out of second place. The series with the Wolverines continues on Friday at 5:05 p.m. and concludes on Saturday at 12:05 p.m.
